On Weather And A Break In

A warm welcome to my new follower, Jennifer :)

Well it's 9.20am and it's still so dark here that I need the light on to type this :/  Yesterday was bitterly cold and we have had torrential rain over the last couple of days too.  There was a light covering of frost when I woke up and more is forecast for tonight.  I feel so lucky though compared to parts of the US.  The news last night reported temperatures of up to minus 30 there and the footage showed so much flooding and damage.  My heart goes out to anyone affected.

What's the weather doing near you?

I am furious....on Tuesday night 2 men in hoodies broke into the local food bank.  It's held in a church and CCTV filmed them breaking in.  They broke down doors and ransacked the building.  They couldn't have broken in for the food because the only things taken were Christmas puddings, mince pies, chocolate, computer equipment and donated money.  The worst thing is that it forced the food bank to remain closed whilst they cleaned up the mess and got the doors replaced.  How could they do that to their own community?  The food bank currently helps around 200 people. I so hope they get caught....

Today will be another family day.  DD & family are coming this afternoon so I want to get some fresh bread rolls to make hot dogs for tea (I already have sausages and onions) and then I want to make Millionaire's Shortbread for afters.  It's one of their favourites.  An extra donation will be made to the food bank too...grrr...

I used the last of my Boots points to buy a couple of toiletries for DD; shampoo and anti-bac hand wash for their kitchen (handy for use after the kids feed the rabbit) so they were FREE, my favourite price :)

Anyway, I must get a wriggle on now that the rain has paused.

Thanks everso for popping in and do stay safe x

  1. The break in is a very sad reflection on our world, the me first section of our society is not the biggest group, but they bring the rest of us down. We are snow free down along the south coast, and I hope we stay that way, having said that we have had enough rain for now!!

    1. As you say, the 'me first' attitude adversely affects us all. It's very sad. Too much rain here too!

  2. How awful, there is always someone who is horrible and ruins all the good work others are doing, I hope they find them and lock them up without food.

  4. These types don't care who they trouble. One day they may need a food bank but will find many have closed their doors for lack of funds. Cold here (-22C this morning) and snow covered but I'm warm indoors and won't be going anywhere until it warms up!

  5. People that would break into a food bank are right up there with the scumbags that steal the poppy fund collection boxes! Hopefully they will catch them.

    What kind of lowlives would break into a food bank for goodness sake? I hate thieves more than anything.
